Did #2 to two stumps in my front yard after I chopped down the trees, but I packed with rock salt, then poured in a mixture of vinegar with a few drops of dish soap. Salt, vinegar, dish soap is also a great weed killer
England probably has very little land left that has been untouched for 100+ years Land my house is on was been space between the main road and a farmers house for the last ~200 years. pretty much untouched during that time, and untouched for millions of years before that. Not sure if any Natives bothered with the space before settlement.
Hey. Those trees were dead from the moment they were planted. Not only do I not want 2 spruce trees that will cover my front yard in 10 years, but I am also allergic to them.
Not my fault some shitty govt intern is the person that marks tree position and type the builder has to plant. If they planted a maple tree, LIKE 90% OF THE HOUSES HERE, the tree would be intact.
